Statistical Indicators on Philippine Development


The Statistical Indicators on Philippine Development (StatDev) is an instrument formulated and maintained by the PSA to strengthen the planning system by providing the means by which economic progress and social change can be monitored and measured more effectively.  It aims to monitor the achievement of the economic and social development goals set forth in the Philippine Development Plan (PDP), including the midterm updates. Thus, the StatDev framework is necessarily congruent with the current PDP and is revised each time a new plan is formulated.   
 
The StatDev replaced the former Economic and Social Indicators (ESI) publication of the former NSCB starting with StatDev 2004 released in July 2005.
 
Updating is done annually and released every June or July. The reference periods of the data vary depending on the latest available data from the source agencies.  The data are released on the PSA website along with technical notes and infographics.
 
StatDev 2015 highlights the performance of the indicators covering the nine PDP sectoral chapters, with latest available data from the source agencies mostly up to 2015 and some as updated as first quarter 2016 to as far as 2011.  The PDP sectoral chapters with their corresponding StatDev 2015 indicators by pace of performance and year of availability are reflected in the tables and figure below.
